Pocatello’s new family-friendly fishing pond and nature area. Enjoy walking paved paths along the river or fish the well-stocked pond. There is even a rope swing on the river if you want to get wet, just head south on the first fork in the path. A large pavilion near the pond is in the future plans of this nature area as well as other improvements.
Edson Fichter Pond has plenty rainbow trout ranging from 6 inches to 6 pounds and it is re-stocked with fish multiple times a month. Early morning and late evening are the best times to fish this pond, and I always do well here with my Tenkara fly pole.
Edson Fichter Nature Area is located in South Pocatello near Indian Hills Elementary (see map below).
Me and a friend of mine (from Moonlit Fly Fishing) are considering doing some free Tenkara fly fishing clinics at the pond later this year. Tenkara is simple to learn, catches fish with little experience, and is a blast to do even when the fish are small. If you would be interested in participating in this Tenkara clinic please fill out the form below to be on our notification list.
